This impressive monument is just outside the walls of the old city (palace). It is well worth a look.

This is a great statue. Rub his big toe for good luck! There is a lovely park behind the statue with shade and benches if you need a break.

This is a popular call and most of the day the if you can, go there around sundown and you could have it to yourselves and time to rub the big toe for as long as you like!

A statue of Grgur Ninski, not much information about what he did or who he was - you will have to find this out for yourself. Make sure you touch his big toe though as it will give you infinite amounts of good fortune.

Impressive statue close to the walls of the old town. Also close to a nice park you can use to rest on a lovely tree shadow

The story is that you should rub the statue's big toe for luck. Even if you aren't superstitious it's worth visiting this statue which is very impressive at 8 metres tall. It's just outside the Golden Gate to the old city.

This statue stands over 8 m tall and is very impressive. I assume he has something to do with Split but worth seeing. Can't really say much else!

This huge statue is near the entry of the Diocletians Palace, for some reason everyone rubs the toes so they are quite shiny

If you are around the Gold Gate, you can see this neat statue just outside it, The whole area is worthy of a visit, and it is free for the effort expanded.
